You will never guess where the Oasis Monorail has turned up....

In a fascinating turn of events, the Oasis Monorail, which had been quietly gathering dust in storage for five long years, has resurfaced in a rather unexpected location. This iconic piece of Broadbeach history, sold back in 2022 for $5k, has made a surprising move to Mount Panorama, as it now sits front and centre for the upcoming 60th edition of the great race.

The Oasis Monorail, with its distinctive design still remarkably intact, appeared on a Facebook post via motorsport media outlet Speedcafe, and has left racing enthusiasts and locals equally puzzled. This fascinating piece of transportation history has found an unlikely new home in the heart of the racing world.

In a region known for its beautiful beaches and vibrant entertainment scene, the Oasis Monorail holds a special place in the memories of many. Its decommissioning left it relegated to obscurity, but now it’s poised to captivate a new audience.

Mount Panorama, famous for hosting some of Australia’s most thrilling motorsport events, may seem like an unconventional destination for a monorail.

Owner Keith Tucker, told 7news earlier this month the Monorail will be wrapped and converted into a Bar for this years event, before eventually being converted into permanent accomodation at the site, overlooking Conrod Straight.
